    Corporate Escape Rooms
    Tessa came to facilitate ‘The Lost Traveller’ at our offices in Melton for our monthly meeting. Communication for booking and arranging the afternoon was wonderful and Tessa explained clearly what we would need to provide. Arriving on time and fully equipped, Tessa got everything set up whilst we watched the explanation video and split into groups. It was easy to run in the offices with nothing needed from us. Everyone enjoyed the game and puzzles which encouraged team working. We completed it in 42 - 46 mins and all had a fantastic time. It was fast paced and engaging but simple enough to facilitate within a small space. I would recommend this 100% for team events and think having Tessa as the facilitator / games master is a must. Every participant enjoyed it and engaged really well with the story despite many having never done an escape room previously. Thanks for a fun afternoon!
    Ah Thankyou. I really enjoyed seeing your amazing teams at work. I think you hold the record for the shortest time over all three teams, ever. Sorry about the overlapping sound confusion at the end. I hope you don’t all fall out! Well played. Your review is hugely appreciated.

    Excellent Throughout
    Tessa was extremely amenable when looking to organise taking a young group of students to the One Way Out Escape Rooms. She was punctual in replying and sorting a date and time to suit us. Once we arrived, we were quickly introduced to the two games we played; Rhyming Room and Toy Shop. Both games were thoroughly enjoyed by the each group and we hope to return to see if they can beat one another's times. Highly recommend a visit.
    Thankyou very much. Your review is hugely appreciated. We look forward to your return visit. What a super group of girls!

    Fantastic 18th Birthday
    All I can say is fantastic. We did the GAS Leak rooms for our sons 18th birthday with friends and was thoroughly enjoyed. We have not done before and found it just as exciting as complex, rooms where designed very well and our host Tessa was very helpful, knowledgable and enthusiastic. We will be going back and would recommend this to any level of escape room from new to experienced. Supporting our local businesses was an added bonus. Bug thanks to Tessa hope to see you soon.
    Thankyou so much. You did so well especially for new players and it was a delight to see you having so much fun. I really appreciate your taking the time to review. Thankyou

    Fantastic kid friendly experience
    Our second visit, but the first with our 12 and 7 year old. Another 5 star experience. We did the Rhyming Room this time which was perfect with the kids. The whole experience starts the second you walk through the door, and our host Ellie was fab. It is great to have an escape room set up with several options that also welcomes kids. We all had a fantastic time solving well thought out puzzles in a really fun room. I also think as far as value for money with escape rooms go this is the best. You get 70 mins and it was £70 for the 4 of us. We are now saving the pennies to return for the Easter themed room. We will definitely be back.
    Thankyou so much. Did you know you are our 500th five star reviewer?! Thankyou for helping us make it to our half century😀 I’m delighted you enjoyed the chocolate factory and we really hope to see you again for Perfect Egg over Easter.

    A truly engaging experience!
    Fantastic experience, we have taken part in other escape rooms but this was our first time here and it was unique - both the room and the situation. We were hosted by Tessa and played the Toyshop which is unique in that it is a linear game. This means you need to solve one puzzle before moving on, while in other escape rooms you tend to have many puzzles on the go at once. The plot of the room and the set up were well received and so imaginative, with the toys themselves playing intriguing roles throughout the escape. Even receiving clues was a joy as they came through in a very unexpected way. Having never played a linear game it felt more difficult on a personal level, but it allows you to stay on track very nicely and gives an unusual style of gameplay. Tessa herself was a lovely host; very kind and expertly explained how the particular escape room would work. I had some unique interactions with Tessa as we had been in contact prior to arrange a surprise proposal at the end of the room. On first contacting Tessa about the proposal I felt at ease. She was polite but also excited and full of ideas, which was very helpful when planning out what was a very nervous moment. Communication was quick and easy through both emails and phone calls. On meeting on the day Tessa was still professional (my partner did not guess we had ever spoken before) and very welcoming. The range of rooms available means there will be a theme for everyone to enjoy, especially as there are temporary seasonal rooms which are set up throughout the year. The both of us are very excited to return and highly recommend visiting, whether you are a seasoned escape room player or not. Thank you Tessa and One Way Out Escape Rooms, we will definitely be back soon!
    Loving the pun Somer! It was a pleasure to help you arrange your proposal, the moment of which has been shared widely!, and a pleasure to host your game. Many thanks for this comprehensive review and I do hope you will be back with your voucher to play again soon.

    Absolutely fantastic escape room!
    Cleverly designed, challenging but fun. The support offered by Tessa and her team is spot on, and really made a difference for us. We did the Gas Escape room and enjoyed every minute of it. Three of us had never done an escape room before but will definitely be doing another!
    Fabulous! So delighted you had fun. Hope to see you again soon.

    Great fun
    Wanted to do something different to celebrate my birthday and although we weren't sure what to expect we weren't disappointed. Tessa greeted us and was soon into character which set the scene for our choice of the Rhyming Room, which we thoroughly enjoyed. Would definitely recommend and only wish we had the time to try another one of the rooms. Thanks Tessa
    Thankyou too! So happy you had fun and hope you will find an excuse to visit Rutland again and play some more games with us.

    A lot of fun! Definitely recommend
    A family of four adults, we had such a laugh! This is such a fun, challenging activity to do. We were really welcomed and received encouragement even when we were finding a little tricky! We’ll definitely be back to try another room when we’re in the area again. We would all highly recommend an afternoon at One Way Out!
    Thankyou! So glad you enjoyed your game. Look forward to seeing you again soon.

    Loads of Puzzles and even more fun!
    A warm welcome and a variety of engaging puzzles! Travelled to One Way Out for an Owners day! Received a warm welcome and had the opportunity to play three of the games. Gas Alert, Framed & The Perfect egg. Each game with chocked full with loads of puzzles to complete and featured some really cool elements. Ideal for larger groups there are plenty of opportunities to work together. Definitely worth a visit
    Thanks Dan. A card, sweeties AND a review. Impressive and thankyou so much! Every review is much appreciated especially from a fellow owner. So glad you could come and try my games.

    Perfect Egg for Easter Sunday
    Four of us (one a 6 year old) did the Perfect Egg game on Easter Sunday. We really enjoyed it and the 6-year old was able to be involved in many of the tasks. We have been before and completed the Rhyming Room, which we can also recommend.
    Thankyou! I’m glad you had fun. Hope to see you again soon!

My daughter and I had a great time in the Gas Alert room yesterday. We opted for the hard option which certainly was a challenge for two of us, but it was a great challenge. The clues are quite hard, and there are lots of puzzles to solve which is great - and it’s nice that they’re not just linear consecutive clues you have to work around the room and the games back and forward with some of the clues. We really enjoyed the challenge, and will definitely be back to try another room perhaps bringing one more brain along with us next time!
My only small criticism is that some of the clues are fiddly to read once you have solved them, but this just adds a layer of challenge. Thank you!

This was our 2nd visit after doing the rhythm room in October. Was just myself and wife and decided to go with the Gas Alert room hard option which we enjoyed and escaped with 10 mins left on the clock. Was more challenging than the rhythm room as we got out of that with 30 mins left. Well planned out rooms and friendly staff. Would return to try out another room here.

Really great experience! Came with 4 x 10 year old for a birthday party and they had a fabulous time. It was tricky at times but we were left to work out the clues and only prompted when needed. Really well laid out and fun clues to solve. Tessa explained everything very well as to what to expect as it was our first escape room. We’ll be back!

Our visit to this escape room in Oakham was excellent. Hard enough to be really interesting. Two of us have been to over 20 escape rooms in England and this was the best one we have been to. We live in Surrey but will definitely be back to experience the other rooms.
